Had I ran some laps in the gx earlier I likely would have sorted my brake issue. But I only ran a few laps in qualy and most of that was spent trying to sort out a setup.

Awesome night of racings for me, 2 great races, got to feel the differences between the GX and the GTC with the back to back races.

Race 1, with the GX, like Marty said, I too was fighting a flat spot syndrome, with most braking zones smoking it up by the end of the race. I'd have to focus on my brake bias I think to try and cure that. Other than that, the car was very grippy for sure. After the kind of non start and the spin of kindness from GB, I ended up with a great battle with Marty for the lead but he had the pace on me and eventually got by.

Race 2 was well wicked and possibly one of my best races eva!! The planets seemed to align themselves for me and the combination of GB's gastro, my setup advantage and a room full of slaughtered goats all allowed me to hold off GB for about 4 laps or so. Such a good feeling to be so into the simulation zone that you are spent and shaking at the end of a race from your effort. Awesome fun, will never happen again (I'm out of goats... do llamas work? hmmm ::)), thank you very muchly :D

There was a similar screen shot on the AC forum. I think the answer there was updated video drivers.

Looks like my firewall of doom hack is working a treat GB!!
(good luck with hunting down a fix, definitely smells like graphics drivers...)
